I just wanted to alert everybody to something...

I occasionally visit the website www.somethingawful.com

It's usually ok, kind of witty.

BUT, they have a new campaign going on -"TruthMedia". What they do is write a review on something that has very, ahem, enthusiastic and loyal fans, and post it as a real review.

It has errors that are intentionally introduced - in order to **** off the fans. Their entire goal is to accumulate flame mail from fans, then they post the mail later, saying the fans look stupid.

I know some people here are very passionate about SW, (I am) to the point of writing a rebuttal about a "wrong" review (I would not).

I just wanted to let you all know that this is up, and to NOT respond to it, because it is fake, and because they are just baiting us, trying to get a reaction.

Here's the link to the review:

Here's the link to the home page where they say that it's a bogus review, and to tell SW fans about it to get a reaction:
